Fabulous ice cream and a wonderful friendly young lady (Francesca) behind the counter. We sampled a number of flavours and they were all good. We went for the coffee - hazelnut - and peanut butter - yummy! They also have a very interesting vanilla with rice mixed through the ice cream, it was marvellous too! We'll be back!

Our group of 10 visited this gelateria 4 times in 5 days on our recent trip to Tuscany. The ice cream is absolutely wonderful - creamy, incredibly flavourful, not sickeningly sweet and very light. The variety of flavours are perfect and I highly recommend the pistachio, hazelnut and cookie in particular. For those a bit more health conscious, the options with a red handled serving spoon were non diary and quite incredible as we didn't even notice the difference. Highly recommended!

If you are looking for the best ice cream you have ever tasted then this is the place to get it. They have a good selection of conventional flavors (I highly recommend the pistachio) but what really sets them apart is their more creative flavors. I thought the mascarpone was excellent but if you are feeling even more adventurous the fennel seed is also very good.

We did have a little trouble fiding the place so I thought I would post the Google Maps link here (the street view is outdated as the name of the gelateria has changed): https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Pienza,+Siena,+Italy&hl=en&ll=43.07774,11.677611&spn=0.001548,0.002167&sll=42.971124,11.851563&sspn=1.587646,2.219238&t=h&hnear=Pienza,+Siena,+Toscana,+Italy&z=19&layer=c&cbll=43.077585,11.677621&panoid=Z8nTFYr9PwJoWYyi5pYgLQ&cbp=12,6.58,,0,32.65

If you are still struggling to find it then you can get a map from tourist information. On that map you will see Piazza delle Alighieri (it looks like a circle with a path through it). The gelateria is right next to that.

In this region of Tuscany it's not easy to find a good ice-cream, so we were delighted to happen upon the Gelateria Toscana, quite near where the bus arrives in Pienza. It has a whole section of water-based ice creams, and another whole section of milk-based ones. There were delicious and unusual flavours: hibiscus flower, jasmine, grape, olive oil, dulche de leche, peach, and even pecorino and pear! (and lots more flavours). The quality was excellent and everyone in our group was really pleased with their choices. The best ice cream we have found since discovering 'Grom' in Siena a few years back.

So you have been to Rome, Florence,Siena, Venice and thought you had experienced the best ice cream - then you arrive at this Gelateria in sleepy Pienza . What have you been missing ? You will find out. If the weather is hot or it's late in the evening try the water based ice creams - they are not so heavy in the stomach and are quite superb.
